3:06 am
consistent clean up process and requires the navy to achieve the regulatory concurrence with the federal and state go agencies before you they off the parcels and created a unique papering or participating with the decision-making process next slide oh, that's it so that's again, the official of the shipyard and the demonstration and the navy parcels you've seen and in your packet so as we've mentioned expensive oversight of the navy's work the 3 main agencies have the regulatory authority to ask the navy to do more or stop what they're doing the main duty that
3:07 am
the environmental protection action and the california water control board in addition to other state agencies play an important rule did you want is the agency that is impounded and reviews and provides oversight and sign off for the radiology issues and the bay area insures the navy does proper dust control and the roll in the development for the same issues in addition as we've mentioned the city has been reviewing all this information i personally have been working on this project since 1993 and had the help of our consultant that had to this lots of and many
3:08 am
landfill agencies to make sure they're doing the eclipse this is a busy slide it is pointing out that the process is set up one process for all the steps in the investigation site investigation remedial faebtd studies, etc., etc., etc. a lot of time we've gone backward the point to show you those are the things that happen it is a lot of money been spent and community involvement ongoing throughout the entire process those next two slides show us the progress in 2010 we came before you when the environmental impact report this
3:09 am
is showing you the stage and the work that's done we set up the graphic the green is good in 20142015 we're all agreeing for the land much of it perm d twoshgz and others are ready for transfer several parts at the tail end there's paperwork being done and parcels in the middle of remediation null did remedies and particle e the lighter green the design report being done for the remedies and parcel f the water will come to you they've not made the decisions though to tissue that that graphic is showing you how through all those years of work every little green dot at least
3:10 am
one, if not several monitoring values showing you the the 25 thousand soil samples and warrant those are the sewer lines the navy has been roving and almost done if in all areas as part of their radiologist investigation so again, the evasion and depositing idol of contamination has happened and reports the agencies have approved and successful ground water treatment and controlled system since 2002 for the landfill and risk assessments that are backed by federal and
3:11 am
state standards and the latest research and again in corners the regulatory agency must secure it before transfer that seemingly boring slides is an example of one of the clean up action they take this is the screening yards they literally take out the dirt they'll screen for radiology issues and put that into 6 inch layers and do handheld struchlts complications and in addition take the level they're trying to remove are so low and so tiny that is p is
3:12 am
hard to see them with the instrument they take samples of the dirt and send it to laboratories to look at the soil to get all the contamination i wanted to mention not shown ♪ slide also do scans of building materials inside of buildings were there was radiology concerns and what the news report was about actually old news the navy in 2014 so over a years ago was informed by the contractor that self-observes there of these scans speed it is literally was it so you would they take their scanning instruments along the walls
3:13 am
their trying to dedetect the tames so that he went too fast there was a deviation to the contractor self-explained and it the navy got what was involved and self-recorded it to the regulatory argz agency that sent out a letter if you look at the begin of it once you've resolved this issue we we're going to- they used father-in-lawscy word they've exhausted the report they said the navy was done because of this we need to suspend that and the navy has been working on and in the process of redoing those at the correct speed and all of that and the regulatory agency said
3:14 am
we'll reissue the letter throughout the process no chance of concerns for health or safety to employees or resident or tenants or anyone else in the community back into what remedies does the navy put in place to insure the development will be safe again, i taunted excavations hundreds of course of yards of sewer and storm drains and soil vapores traction in our competitive summary there was circles of ground water contamination there's that vapors coming from the chemicals going into the ground they'll literally put in a well, which is a fancy a perry
3:15 am
or peace officer rated pipe they'll treat the vapors and remove the contamination so another way to institute the treatment of ground water that's another fancy word for injecting substance to break down the subsidized and i think jefferson county the bacteria and once the food is gone it is broken down to not a harmful chemicals they do several areas successful they've i think rejected zero iron a fancy name for ground up iron that is i think rejected into the ground water and chemical reaction where the chemicals are broken down into
3:16 am
non-toxic chemicals another remedy that's been put in place durable covers on the next slide another remedy containment and cap on the land filing fill so the parcel e-2 if you look at the map is the area where the landfill is they literally dump their garbage and yes, sir. their chemicals issues we know that is there there are decisions about the recommendations and it is contained and capped i'll show you a diagram and part of the mechanic e mechanism that is restrieksz in the deed and all the parcels will have the restriction that are for all the parcels you can't drink the ground water it is two salty and have garden in raised beds and
3:17 am
construction must comply with plans to control dust and everything here i'll go really fast so this is what i mentioned a lot of areas that have duplicate similar remedies this is a list calls brown field and here's two works you're familiar with i'm assuming if you have begun shopping at ikea they've built lots of businesses over contaminated land it is the development the situations and parks there is also requirements for special foundations and the same restrictions i've mentioned about not drink the ground water and planting plants above the cover so i have a bunch of
3:18 am
pretty pictures the excavation this is a picture of the roving sewers those next two slides are about the equipment they use when they're doing things in the ground and some above ground here's the pretty picture the development again building streets and soil and sidewalks for parks this is an example of durable cover the navy installed a before and after and grafts of new dirt a protection mat to the vegetation will grow this is durable covers on the shoreline their engineered and do it in the right way to make sure the soil stays in place >> hurry this is the cross
3:19 am
section of what the landfill covers look like as you can see it's robust 0 up to 25 feet of landfill waste and in 1974 was played then and 2000 another layer and other things on there and they'll put another feet of soil at least of photo of soil between the people playing in the park that is going to be a park and the waste down below okay we've will mentioned 22 years $875 million of your tax dollars and since 1980 it's been save to tenants out there and parcels was transferred in 2004 those next 3 parcels are ready
3:20 am
this is a reminder about the areas that i've talked about before d-2 and b-1 and g and r-718 will be ready and b two and one ready at the end of the year and ongoing other parcels will be ready after that more information about the maps those are in the back in our handout questions that also get asked about sea levels rise and showing you the development itself is already planned to make sure they take a look at it and if their- the calculations were incorrect and they need more they'll put adaptive berm on the outside of the area we
3:21 am
get asked about natural disasters we know how to build building we're not worried about the buildings themselves and for the other areas yes there will be cracks and little holes or mound of soil but a whole maintains plan that includes emergency responses so i'm sorry to interrupt you i know but - we have a real issue and that's we're going to lose a quorum and stop the managing there's a group of have speaker cards no, we don't as far we don't okay so - why don't you continue for a little bit. >> i'll show the last slide
3:22 am
those retires reviewed the deed restrictions so all the agencies before the transfer and then they'll have regulatory authority if anyone violate it they'll make them do the right thing the ordinances will be required to morptd and report once a year on their own building sidewalks and streets and parks and medium strips the navy b will continue with their unanimous shoreline protection and the landfill and the shoreline and the most important message we have another entire process those those is so the city has hair own process implemented in the transfer avenue parcel a of the health code every emily murase permit
3:23 am
has to come to the hunt and the applicant has to have a contamination plan and productive they're doing their annual report so we the city has the authority to make them do corrections and we can shut down or fine them there's a whole multiple layer of oversight in the redevelopments of parcel a it is in place and concerns of dusted control we issued notice of violations and there's not been any complaints tennis e.r. since that times the dust control was explained in the attachment and i'll be happy to answer any questions you i appreciate the speed you got through our presentation i need

3:27 am
of substance control didn't royals the storm drains on the north side of that building it's not been fulfill cleared and issues with lead and contamination and issues with regard to soil testing of the utility corridor i don't think one i don't support this transfer. >> thank you. >> her time. >> i've made my statement i electronically submitted my comments to the newspapers and your aware that in addition. >> can you use the mike. >> in addition to the nbc news reports that recently identified the scan speed issue there's a technical report that identified about 50 thousand full name soil
3:28 am
samples that's been objected and as part of the 0shgd activity of bio technician so there's significant health issues and for amy to stand here and stay as a representative the hunt they've transferred this is a something like that of little regard she has for worker and public safety in this area. >> >> mr. robert woods he's - and mr. ace washington lame i'm up here speaking is as an individual not an advocate
